Shakespeare's birthday. For teachers, pupils and parents alike of KS2 check out www.findingthewill.com for help in getting to grips with the cracking stories. A primary school in Hampshire last week produced Macbeth in a just one week - even the Reception class spoke original text. No one is too old or too young to learn!
This teacher resource links to the BBC animations of Macbeth by William Shakespeare, with suggestions for how to use the videos to deliver an exciting and engaging course of study for Key Stage 2 pupils.
